    Default New York Knicks vs. Toronto Raptors Game Thread 1/15/2010

    NEW YORK KNICKS VS. TORONTO RAPTORS





    David Lee and the Knicks
    19 points per game, 10.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists, .3 blocks

    vs.



    Chris Bosh and the Raptors
    24.0 points per game, 11.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 blocks

    The Raptors are currently on a 2 game losing streak. With a win, they will reach .500. The Eastern Conference is so weak, a .500 record will likely guarantee a playoff berth.

    The Knicks are currently 1.5 games out of 8th place. A Knick win and a Chicago loss will get the Knicks within .5 games of the 8th and final playoff spot.

    Starting Lineups
    Knicks
    PG Duhon
    SG Chandler
    SF Gallinari
    PF Jeffries
    C Lee


    Raptors
    PG Jack
    SG DeRozan
    SF Turkoglu
    PF Bosh
    C Bargnani

    Default I hate The Celtics a little more today

    Last night I cheered for Boston for the first time in my life because they were playing The Bulls and a Bulls loss and a Knick win tonight would have given us the 8th spot, and The Celtics let me down so I hate them even more today!

    Go Knicks!

    Good game thread. I'm thinking that Gallo is going to drop a career high tonight. I mean it is Italian Heritage Night. Lol. We really need to come out with this win tonight. Let's go Knicks !

    Why do they look this good if they're not a top Eastern Conference team?

    Default Taxes, nobody stays long

    Players don't stay there long, 60 plus % taxes on your salary (but free healthcare like we are going to get, except NBA players get free healthcare, don't usually do not take the teams physician, most top orthopedic physicians will operate for free for their name in the paper, going to want to be a pro athlete physician, a couple million minimum, that means you pay the team and treat for free, Canada or U.S.). Even if your making 50K a year, 40% gone. Yankee's team physicians probably pay over 5 million to treat for free. Then all the normal patients say, I go to the Yankee's team physician. Sports dirty secret!

    Going to Canada, is like taking a big cut in pay, no major league baseball or NBA basketball player doesn't want to be there very long, so team turnover rates are the highest.

    I believe the Blue Jays one a world series, with some veterans back in the nineties, Andre Dawson rings a bell. Hockey, well they own that, but even the superstars will come south for the salary boost sometime in their career. Back to 48 hours, I can't watch. Sorry about the long rant.

    Well that explains why Tracy Mcgrady and Alonzo Mourning didn't want to play there.I don't blame them though, who would want to play in a country in which hockey is the number one sport?

    Damn!

    People should at least kind of know what they're talking about. No wonder people keep coming up to Canada all ignorant.

    60% plus of your salary goes to taxes? It's not 60% plus and what does go to taxes is made the same as any other NBA player because they have accountants. You just start out with a different tax structure.

    When they talk to players that have left, in most cases, they wish they hadn't.

    Vince Carter re-signed here on his own free will. He then left when he wanted Dr. J as the GM and instead they picked a crappy GM. Tracy McGrady left before because both he and his mommie said point blank that Vince was getting all the attention and he was getting the blame when they didn't win. Bitch! Damon Stoudemire, who left on his own back to Portland is now warning players like Chris Bosh to re-think, because he wishes he stayed. Marcus Camby was mad when he got traded, Mo Peterson ran over and kissed the center floor decal when he arrived back in Toronto, Charlie Villanueva said he wanted to stay for life and was very upset when he got traded. In the summer, among the players who visit Toronto are SHAQ, T-Mac, Zo, Magette, Brand, Iggy, Finley, Rip, Jalen Rose, Okafor, C-Webb....but I guess they must not spend anything because of all those high taxes?

    The Jays won back to back World Series in the same fashion as other big market clubs. Why wouldn't they, being the 4th largest market in North America behind only L.A., New York and Chicago. They payed big money just like the Yankees, Lakers, Cowboys, etc. And Andre Dawson played for Montreal.

    The NHL's Maple Leafs make FAR more money than any other hockey team and the 6 Canadian out of 30 NHL teams carry the low budget, low payroll U.S. teams by pulling in 40% of the revenue. *ahem* That means a pay cut if you leave to go south.

    Wow!

    I hate the fact that we gave up such an early lead, but I do give us some props for clawing our way back to single digits. Gallo's numbers were real solid.

    I love how as soon as there is a "Chandler is overrated" thread, he has one of the worst games he's had all year.


    BTW anyone see the Hawks-Suns game? Crawford just hit a Game winning 3. Dude is doing magic for the Hawks.
